  • Notes 
    • MR. SILENCE

      Con Gerbig; town constable many years ago, was among the official guardians one day in the courtroom. He had been instructed that whenever he heard a name called to hunt up the individual and bring him into court. There was a little hubbub so John Klippert shouted, "Silence!" Immediately Con hustled out through the corridor calling loudly for, "Mr. Silence."
